Baileyana, Tangent & True Myth Tasting Room
- Wine: Winery
OVER 40 YEARS OF PIONEERING
Baileyana, Tangent & True Myth is a family wine company in the truest sense. Our patriarch, Jack Niven, pioneered wine grape planting in the Edna Valley in the early 1970s, and today, his children and grandchildren are carrying on his legacy. We grow eleven different grape varieties, and make an extreme range of wines in a wide array of carefully focused styles. This allows us to showcase the diversity of our cool-climate, SIP-certified sustainable vineyard located in California’s Edna Valley, the historic Paragon Vineyard. No other wine company, whether corporately held or family-owned, grows grapes and makes such a broad spectrum of wines from a single cool-climate estate. Rather than group all of these efforts under one wine brand, the Nivens have strategically positioned them as five separate projects for you to enjoy: Baileyana, Tangent & True Myth, plus Zocker and Trenza.
Come visit our tasting room at the historic Independence Schoolhouse, built in 1909. Taste a selection of wines chosen from our 30+ different white and red offerings across all five of our brands. Browse our enticing shop stocked with gourmet foods and charming gifts, as well as the entire lineup of our family's wines: Baileyana, Tangent & True Myth, plus Zocker and Trenza. We have plenty of outdoor seating and a lawn area for blankets or your own chairs, with views across the vines from the valley to the mountains, plus two Bocce ball courts. So bring a picnic or buy cheese, salami and crackers from us while you sip and enjoy the ambiance that is the Edna Valley!
